Masculine cards

Hello Scrappy friends, welcome back.
Just a quick post today sharing two Birthday Cards.
I've been playing with my new favourite product; Tim Holtz Oxide distress inks. 
The stamp is by Viva Las Vegas and I used 
Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint and Walnut stain inks.
The background mat paper is from Kaisercraft "Factory 42."
The ink colours are, Fossilized Amber, Fired Brick and Vintage Photo.
The background mat paper is also from Kaisercraft "Factory 42."

I love the way these inks blend so well, they give a creamy, intense, matte finish
and respond to water beautifully.

Thanks for calling in, I hope you come again.
